Wall Insulation Wall insulation is needed on houses built before the 50's.
Many homes have no insulation in the walls if constructed before
1950 and minimal insulation if constructed between the 50's and
the 70's. The procedure to reinsulate walls is done from the interior
or exterior of the house with little or no damage to the wall.
Attic Insulation Attic insulation is the most important area to be upgraded
in existing homes. The building code in the early seventies required
only 4" in the attic (R-11). Today's requirement is up to 12"
of fiberglass or 10" of cellulose. Yes, cellulose has more
R-value per inch and cellulose provides 100% coverage vs. 80% coverage
Garage Ceiling Insulation Garage ceiling insulation is installed from the garage
area through 1" or 2" holes. It's blown in through a tube
inserted into the cavity, filling the bays to capacity. Yesterday's
building codes require minimal garage ceiling insulation and no
wall insulation in garage walls.
Sound Reduction Sound reduction applies to any home with sheetrock (wallboard)
walls. Today's open floor plan allows family rooms with movie size
sound systems to interfere with the peace and quiet of the bedrooms.
We blow cellulose between floors and into interior walls.
